WHY CREATE AN AWWA CORRUGATED BOLTED STEEL TANK SPECIFICATION? WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT:
AWWA is a water storage tank standard accepted by most organizations in the US. Schools are governed by DSA who oversee education projects and review engineering for infrastructure. DSA will generally only approve a tank with an AWWA specification. OSHPOD governs hospital projects and will approve only tanks with an AWWA specification. Any water tank used to store public potable water must have an AWWA written specification regardless of whether the tank meets all other structural codes and requirements required by AWWA. Even NFPA for Fire Protection Standards would like all tanks to meet AWWA.
Corrugated Bolted Steel Tanks MUST have their own AWWA spec written by manufacturing engineers and professionals who are experts in Corrugated Bolted Steel Tanks. TO EXPRESS YOUR SUPPORT PLEASE CLICK THIS LINK.
